Yee-haw.

As mothers, we have our ups and downs.... days when we feel like we should wear those #1 MOM t-shirts and days when we should wave a white flag and hide in a deep dark closet. This morning, I proudly slipped into my #1 MOM shirt. Belle's kindergarten class spent the earlier part of this week making stick horses. They've been studying 'the farm', and today they planned a stick horse rodeo. No Shiloh dress today. Instead, they were to dress as cowboys/cowgirls. Belle was so excited. And me, being mom-of-the-year, decided to make sure she was the most adorable little cowgirl in kindergarten. We did the clothes, the hair, the hat. Mom did good. She was so precious. Take a look for yourself...




Actually, the one and only problem was that once Matt got her to school, she seemed to be the ONLY cowperson there. Yes, the stick horse rodeo/dress up day isn't until Friday. If you need me, I'll be in the closet with my flag.

Man...you are so talented in your writing! How do you do that? I don't know what it is, but you are so good!!!

That is so funny!! You are still mom of the year but just a little confused on the days. I bet she had fun being the only one dressed up though.

Oh my gosh! This was always my biggest nightmare on dress up days. I am sure Belle handled it better than I would have!

Ang, that is the funniest thing ever and I'm laughing so hard!! Something you will never forget as a Mom. Look at the bright side, she gets to be out of dress code two days this week instead of only one. Thanks for the laugh.

Hey there! Remember me? I stumbled across your blog and thought I'd say Hey! Looks like you guys are doing pretty good. Tell Matt I said Hello.

You are a riot! You can blame Matt, he should have told you it was the wrong day. yeah, it was his fault.

she did look super adorable though.

I went to high school with both Robyn and Ryan AND I used to work with Robyn when she taught at Northside High School. You're kids are cute, too. Last time I saw you guys, you were pregnant with the 2nd one. It's been a while!

Thanks for the laugh! I'm impressed that you blogged about it. I would have just hidden away for a couple of months. :-) Hey, she was the cutest (and the only) cow girl there.
